Winds, strings, and piano comprise the chamber music family’s essential members. Combine them, and one hears chamber music at its richest, most multi- dimensional level. Brahms’s pairings of clarinet with cello, and horn with violin, create deeply inspired variations of the traditional piano trio format, each work a unique masterpiece of extreme beauty. Brahms serves as this program’s point of arrival and departure, as an outstanding work by the Hungarian Ernst Dohnányi gathers all the instruments for a dazzling close.
